Background and Purpose: Hypotension during Hemoadialysis is one of the risk factors of mortality and morbidity in patients. This study was preformed at Imam Khomeini and Fatemeh Zahra Hospitals, in Sari during 2007.
Materials and Methods: 100 Hemoadialysis patients were evaluated. Serum calcium and serum albumin levels were measured prior to Hemoadialysis. Patient’s blood pressure was measured before, during and after Hemoadialysis and data was analyzed using descriptive statistics, χ² test.
Results: Hypotension, during Hemoadialysis was seen in 28% of patients. Of the total patients, 25% had hypocalcaemia. Of 25 patients with hypocalcaemia, 39.3% had hypotension, while 19.4% had normal blood pressure, thus, showing a significant difference between the two groups.
Conclusion: It is suggested to revise the calcium concentration of dialysate.
